That's useful feedback.  Other motives for having kept my
Passat thus far, besides wondering about winter driving, are:

1.  Comfort--esp. rear seat comfort on longer trips.  This is
rarely a factor though.

2.  The Prius, being a hatchback, gets really hot in the
summer.  Ugh.  And I can't say I am getting use to its being a
hatchback.  The hatch door is pretty high for me to close,
too.  I tend to put everything on the floor in the back and
not use the hatch at all.  I am debating about whether to just
try leaving the seats down....

On a couple of occasions I've had adult rear seat passengers for two-three
hour trips.  They commented on the surprisingly good leg room and moving the
ash tray from the front cup holder to the back cup holder.  :-)

The Prius IMHO is a bit of an illusion, possibly because mine is black.   It
looks bigger from the inside than from the outside.

Well, for the short amount of time I sat in the back seat, it
seamed uncomfortable--stiff, with the seats too upright, and
too short a seat (and I am only 5 feet tall!).

BUT it is seeming more and more silly to keep my other
car--esp. since I know someone who wants to buy it (and knows
all about its woes).
